What SB so kindly didn’t mention is that I could only explain the techniques not demonstrate them, because I was thrashed with a capital MF “T.”
CrossFit most definitely prepares you for the GPP of military life and training. The opposite however, is certainly not true. I spent three weeks jumping on and off trucks, running up and down hills in full gear, getting minimal sleep, eating poorly, etc. etc. and yet was able to continue functioning as well as all and better than most of my peers… however…. My return to BrandX and my first experience with “Jonesworthy” went… hmmm… poorly. I made it through the first round relatively intact, but Pukie’s cousin “Belchy” showed up with the first rep of squats in all the following sets. My strict pull-ups seem to have gotten a little better, but I think that’s just do to dropping about 5 lbs, because my kips have lost a couple reps. The thing getting to me today though, is the DOMS. I haven’t felt a workout like this in months! I think it’s a combination of lack of exercise and lousy diet, both of which I will try to remedy these next couple of weeks while I’m on leave.
I’ll be up in Seattle next weekend checking out CF North and Brian Mulvaney’s Carport Gang, but I’ll be back at BrandX on the 27th for one more session before I fly over to establish yet another CF Iraq
